Seven Turtles!!

It was a turtle day!  The swell has passed and I got back out on my board this morning.  It was a bit choppy at first with wind blowing from the south.  I headed south anyway.  By the time I headed past Kam 3….. the wind backed off some  but if was still a bit bumpy.  The turtles didn’t make me wait!  The first turtle surfaced out farther so I paddled out.  Then two more joined us and I was in a turtle triangle!  Another very friendly turtle popped up and was posing.  There was a short break….and then two more surfaced!  I got so many photos!  Just as I had decided to head back….. a really little turtle popped up by my board.  I tried hard to get a photo but it was quick!  It kept popping up and diving down all around me but it was too quick. I paddled back in calmer conditions and then went swimming.  The water visibility was a little better but not by much.   Water temperature is 82 degrees!  Such a nice morning……
